Pet Laser Therapy

If your cat, dog, or other small animal is struggling with a chronic pain condition or recovering from a soft tissue injury, laser therapy can help promote faster healing and provide relief.

The Benefits of Laser Therapy

At Radnor Veterinary Hospital, we prioritize safe pain management through laser therapy, a drug-free and completely non-invasive treatment that helps your special friend achieve a higher quality of life.

Lasers have been widely utilized in medicine for decades, including for surgical incisions. However, the type of laser we use for therapeutic purposes is a low-level or “cold” laser. This device emits a beam of amplified light at a lower frequency range than its surgical cousin, allowing light to pass right through the skin without cutting or burning it.

These light frequencies stimulate injured cells to produce more of a vital substance called ATP, giving the cells more “fuel” to repair themselves and promote faster healing. The light energy also stimulates blood flow at the injury site so the tissues have plenty of oxygen and nutrients to work with.

If your cat, dog, or small animal suffers from acute or chronic pain and inflammation, laser therapy can be a highly effective alternative to anti-inflammatory or pain-relieving medications, which may not be a safe option for some pets. The increased circulation from the amplified light beam improves lymphatic drainage to relieve edema (swelling) while helping the tissues flush out painful inflammatory substances. Laser therapy can even help damaged nerves regain more normal function.
